Designers spend a lot of time staring at things. I mean, staring at them trying to figure out how they came to be the way they are. Thinking about the process of creation. Take this alarming little vase I found at a local flea market this weekend: Someone had to 1) CONCEIVE of this figure, 2) get it out of their mind by DRAWING it, 3) more people became involved as a sculpture and a mold had to be made from it, 4) yet others cast, glazed, fired, painted and gilded it, 5) someone put it in a box and others drove a truck taking it to a store where some nice person had to sell it to another nice person who looked at it for 4o years and finally got tired of it and had their daughter put it up for sale for $1 at the flea market so I could see it, laugh and buy it.
Now isn't that marvellous?

This is my best-selling greeting card. I did it with Design Design, Inc in 2005 and it continues to sell well every year. The trick in designing greeting cards is to come up with an original take on a familiar subject, which frankly is not always that easy to do. This grad image would also make great gift bags or tableware. You can buy the card online here.
